Yu Darvish to Face C.J. Wilson Head-to-Head in Texas Rangers-Los Angeles Angels Series

It’s finally here; the Texas Rangers host the Los Angeles Angels this weekend at the Ballpark in Arlington for a three-game series that’s sold out. The best part is the first game on Friday, in which Rangers rookie phenom Yu Darvish will take the mound to face the man he replaced in Texas – new Angels ace C.J. Wilson.

Naturally, the players have downplayed the hype surrounding the event, but the fans that pack the Ballpark on Friday night won’t let them continue that for long. Wilson was part of back-to-back World Series trips by the Rangers, the second of which he was the team’s ace.
